This year, we are encouraging you to consider a new tradition for your family. Beginning December 1, 2017 you are invited to celebrate Christ in your home through a daily Advent devotional as a part of your holiday traditions?
The goal of Christmas for us as Christians is exalt Christ and keep Him at the center of our celebrations and our lives. Below you will find a link to “Good News of Great Joy.” This booklet contains 25 daily readings and meditations by John Piper focused on the great news that Christ has come!

For your convenience there will be printouts of this devotional available at the church starting tonight November 29, 2017. The link provided allows you to download the booklet to your digital reading device and/or print it out.
We look forward to celebrating or Great Savior Jesus Christ with you throughout the Christmas Season!
For families with children:
We would also like to recommend using a Jesse Tree to tell the story of the Gospel from creation to the coming of Christ through bible readings and making ornaments together. There are many resources and websites with information and examples of a Jesse Tree. Because there are so many options online we would like to help by providing the following link to a free pdf that you can print out. We will have some of these available at the church as well.
